Sedation Dentistry in Temple, TX
Dental anxiety is a serious problem experienced by millions of people. This fear may be so overwhelming that it causes you to delay dental visits or avoid treatment altogether.
At Temple Dental Trails, we want you to enjoy excellent oral health, and we know that you do too. With Dr. Leung’s advanced training in sedation dentistry, we can safely help to ease your fears so you can take control of your own oral health.
All the Support You Require to Relax
Are you one of the many people who have had an unpleasant dental experience in the past? If so, it may be impossible to believe that your dental treatment can be comfortable and stress-free. Ongoing fear of dental work is a very understandable reaction to this type of experience.
We realize that this fear can dominate your thoughts as you approach any dental treatment. People often feel anxious because they don’t really understand what is going to happen during their procedure.
You can feel calm and confident knowing that our team will walk you through the process and take all the time necessary to answer your questions. We are your support team throughout dental treatment.
Sedation Options to Fit Your Needs
Using up-to-date sedation methods, we will help you achieve a state of deep relaxation, making it possible for you to have your dental procedure without feeling a thing. Your sedation treatment will be custom-tailored to fit your procedure, treatment timeline, and comfort level.
- Nitrous oxide – Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is very effective for many patients with dental phobia. If you experience mild anxiety, nitrous oxide will help you achieve a state of gentle relaxation during your procedure. There are no side effects with nitrous oxide, and once we stop administering the gas, you will be able to resume your normal activities – a great benefit for busy families and professionals who need to return to work!
- Oral sedation – If you experience debilitating dental anxiety, we suggest oral sedation. For many people, anticipation of the dental visit may be more stressful than the treatment itself. To alleviate this pre-treatment anxiety, Dr. Leung will prescribe a calming medication that you can take at our office before your procedure.
A member of our professional team will be by your side throughout the procedure to make sure you are completely comfortable. We can also combine oral sedation with nitrous oxide to ensure that you have a completely stress-free experience.
Your Comfort Comes First
We understand how upsetting even the most basic treatments can be for people who suffer from dental phobia. Your comfort is as important to us as it is to you, and you can be assured that we are here to help you feel safe and secure.
Our office is warm and welcoming, and we offer anxiety-reducing amenities like flat screen TVs in our treatment rooms to make you feel at home. Pillows, blankets, and warm, scented towels help us achieve a soothing, comforting ambiance.
If you’ve been putting off dental treatment, we would love the opportunity to show you the difference that supportive, gentle care can make. Please contact our Temple dental office for more information about our safe, effective sedation options.
